Manufacturers and their employees share a mutual goal of a safe, communicative and productive workplace. Collaboration and thoughtful rulemaking between manufacturers and governmental agencies, as well as fairness and balance in our labor law system, are essential to achieving that goal. Maintaining the time-tested balance between labor unions and employers is critical to economic growth and job creation.

The NAM is committed to defending the rights of manufacturers and their employees and fighting changes to our labor law system that undermine employer-employee relations.
